The west coast of the USA is full of surprises. Lively San Francisco City, the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge, the serenity of Sausalito, a town on the northern side of the Golden Gate Bridge. I would write a post on these some time. But today, I would like to write about the road journey along the coast of California.

One among the many things you would want to do while on your trip to the US is shopping. And the best place to do so is the Gilroy Premium Outlets, which is the factory outlet group of stores about 60 miles south from the Bay area. You could take one quick highway 101 to reach there from the bay area or the San Francisco city in about an hour or less, or take a CalTrain(that would be even longer and you won’t do much, but just sit at one place, or the best, move around in the train).
If you want to get a bit adventurous, you could do what I did. Get out really early in the morning, take a longer yet a B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L two hour drive along the coast from the Half Moon Bay Beach, passing Santa Cruz, a small town along your way. Then, experience the 17 mile drive, where you would also see the Pebble Beach Resort. I’ve seen this place in many romantic movies.
On your way back you could do your shopping at Gilroy, about 30 miles from the Pebble Beach. Then head back to the city, taking the fast 101 highway. Here are some of the beautiful places I was able to capture on my iPhone 5S during my trip. And yes, I had rented a car from Enterprise car rentals, and hence, I could stop whenever I wanted to. I suggest you do the same if you plan to take this trip.
